Good evening folks,

Today finished making the door lantern supports complete with reflectors. The reflectors were made from sheet plastic, dimpled in the middle. Chrome pen was used to give the reflector appearance. Still need to trim one a bit and apply some rust.

The lanterns are gluded to the supports and drying. I'll post photos tomorrow.




Have fun,
Mike

I don’t remember seeing this type of lamps modeled before. You’re doing a terrific job.

Howdy,

Thanks Jerry, Rick, Michael, and Philip for your words of encouragement.

Today I finished hiding lighting wires and adding the runners. There are three wires, two positive and one negative. I wired them in parallel and need to calculate the resistor value.

Net up are the screens for the windows and doors.

Have fun,

Howdy folks,

I am finishing windows before I install them. Here are a few photos of the technique I use with organza ribbon. First glue on the screen door or window, then apply to the ribbon. Weight it down for a while, then trim with a razor blade. These photos don't show the finished product which is dusted with several pigment colors:

Glue bottle - 560 Canopy glue


Frames glued to organza ribbon


That's it for tonight. Tomorrow I hope to install all the windows...finally!

Have fun,
Mike

I think the organza ribbon for screen material is a great idea, Mike.

Howdy folks,

Rick, Jerry, and Russ, thanks for the encouragement.

I think I have finished all the windows but two in the clerestory. Cutting all those panes, screens, etc required Optivisor use the whole time.

Here is a photo of the front with windows, glass, and screens installed:


...and the back:


After I install the two open windows with screens in the clerestory, I think I'll begin weathering the outside. I plan to clean and prime all the detail castings on Thursday.

Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

Yesterday, foolishly thinking the dining hall was almost complete, I made a list of the remaining things to do:

• Ladder
• Porches X 3 - two front one end
• Roof vent w/guy wires for cook stove
• Roof Vent w/guy wires for pot belly stoves
• Porch covers X 2

Details for porch
#9675; Tubs
#9675; Brooms
#9675; Milk jugs
#9675; Steps
#9675; Railing

Interior
• Picnic tables X 4
• Wall Shelving & Cabinet X 2
• Potbelly stove X 2
• Cook stove
• Coffee pots
• Cups, saucers and bowls
• Milk pitcher
• Coat rack on wall
• Dividing wall installation
• Condiment racks on walls
• Shelves on ends
• Salt and Pepper

I need to learn to say, "finished".

Mike

Sometimes a model is “finished” when the builder runs out of steam.

Your model is a real beauty; impressive attention to detail.

Mike
